Withdrawal Symptoms, posted on Mon Apr 27 02:30:28 2009
Posted by: Ptoink
Category: General
It is now possible to specify denominations when you withdraw money from banks. This may not appear in every bank until the next reboot. The new syntax is

withdraw <amount> in <denomination>

so you could type

>withdraw 2 forins in livres

and get livres rather than forins. Note that this only works within currency regions: you can't use

> withdraw 2 forins in dollars

to bypass the money changers.

This change was requested by Hagi. May his camels never run dry.

Due to the excessive computational cost, it is now only possible to teach a maximum of ten levels of a time of a root skill (crafts, fighting, covert, etc, etc)

Ladder Refinements, posted on Sun Apr 26 00:18:25 2009

A few tweaks to improve your PK ladder experience:

1) Being offline for more than 7 days flags you as being "inactive". Inactive people will show up on the ladder view in cyan, with [inactive] by their name.

2) Inactive people are not counted as possible targets. Therefore your three targets will be the three people ahead of you in the list, skipping over any inactives.

3) Every 24 hours, all inactive players will drop one rank until they fall off the bottom of the ladder. This means it's...

Blue Tooth Earrings, posted on Fri Apr 24 17:46:22 2009

A really minor blog posting here, but a new item of jewellery - a blue tooth earring, has been added to the Magic Box in Genua in response to a player idea. They suggested that it would be the ultimate in talkerisable accessories, and who am I to disagree?

No-one, that's who.

The colour changes that accompany impact shield absorbption were previously blocked by having on the 'brief combat' option - now they're not.

Greeter imps have been made available as playershop furniture, available from the... uh... spulluf in the Normal Fashion. They are the latest in technomancy, incorporating multi-character memories and extensive support for language localization.

Hi,

Another simple minor achievement for Ankh-Morpork.

Shields For TPA/major Shield, posted on Sat Apr 18 02:08:34 2009
Posted by: Kaylar
Category: Guilds
This is a repost of the blog entry that was eaten by a bug:

Major shields and TPAs cast with any shield that is not a proper shield

(i.e. one that cannot be used in combat to block) will now be significantly

less effective than those created with a proper shield.

This was changed to address the problem of some players having access to

available. These shields were later removed but it was not practical to remove

Top Ten Tables, posted on Fri Apr 17 21:37:21 2009
Posted by: Drakkos
Category: General
To clear up all the crazy, zany creator guilds and gods from the top ten tables, I've changed the way they are architected internally. A side effect of this is that the current values for the tables have been wiped - they'll rebuild themselves over the new few days/weeks in the normal fashion.
